Finding Hillsborough County Arrest Records and Carrying out Warrant Search
Hillsborough County arrest records can tell you whether the person whose background you are checking has ever been incarcerated by the police. Accessing these records is not difficult but it requires time.
The first thing you should do is navigate to the Sheriff's website. This website has an electronic database which presents people who are currently in jail (https://webapps.hcso.tampa.fl.us/ArrestInquiry). You can carry out an arrest search based on an inmate's name and add booking date, number, release date, race, gender, and date of birth. Results include offense description bond amount and a mugshot.
You can also submit an online request from the Sheriff's record Division to view public records detailing arrests. You'll have to sign up for this service. Alternatively, you can pay them a visit and ask for a record in person. Their address is 1900 East 9th Avenue, Tampa, Florida 33605. For more questions, call 813-247-0960 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Before we move on, it is important to note that Hillsborough County arrest records by themselves do not indicate that a person has been found of a crime.
Carrying out a Florida Arrest Search
To expand your inquiry, we advise using the Criminal History Service of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (found at cchinet.fdle.state.fl.us/search/app/default?3). It enables you to do a full online background check on any person you want in all of FL counties (including arrest history and prior convictions). You'll need to sign up, provide an email and credit card details. Each search will cost you $25.00.
There is another tool which will help you obtain Florida arrest records. The state's department of corrections has an online inmate search tool (found at: dc.state.fl.us/OffenderSearch/Search.aspx). By typing an inmate's name (and, optionally, DC number), you'll be shown an electronic record detailing that inmate's personal details and physical description, initial receipt date and release date. Most importantly, the records include the facility populated by the inmate and his or her offense and sentence history. The tool also lets you look for releases, supervised population and absconders/fugitives.
Searching for court Records
Another way to trace Hillsborough County arrest records is to access criminal court dockets as these dockets shed light on a person prior convictions and jail sentences. To get these dockets, refer to website of the Clerk of Court. You'll find there a case search tool (found at https://hover.hillsclerk.com/html/case/caseSearch.html) allowing you to traces public records by name, number or date. Through the category field you can narrow your search to criminal records only.
You can also go to the Clerk's office and file a FOIA request in person (800 E Twiggs St, Tampa, FL 33602, Phone: 813-276-8100). For your information, the Florida Sunshine Law gives you and any other citizen the right to view almost all official governmental documents.
